Freelance Graduate Academic Writers 

 

Immediate Start

 

Are you a graduate or postgraduate degree holder, i.e., BSc, BA, MSc, MA, MBA or PhD? Are you looking for a flexible part time/full time job that fits your lifestyle? Do you excel at academic writing? Can you meet deadlines?

 

Platinum Research are heading towards a very busy period in our working calendar and are therefore in a position to take on a variety of part-time and full-time writers, proof-readers and quality assessors. We are looking for high quality graduates in every major subject area to help us fulfil orders for our customers. To be considered you, must have a minimum of a high 2:1 undergraduate degree and have qualified from a respectable university within the UK. Further qualifications such as a Masters or PhD are also highly desirable and would thus make you suitable for more available pieces. Experience in the writing industry is not essential but preferred. To qualify as a quality assessor we would normally expect you to have a PhD and have experience marking and critiquing the work of students. 

 

Freelance writers at Platinum Research are expected to produce high-quality work for our customers, usually within a timeframe of five days. All orders need to be of the highest quality and submitted within set deadlines. All work will be based upon the requirements of our clients and you will sometimes be required to complete amendments at short notice depending on feedback by the client. At Platinum Research we strive for customer satisfaction and offer to go the extra mile for our clients. After all happy clients are returning clients, which means more work for you.

 

As a professional freelance researcher, you will need to have access to sources from which you will be able to reference, making this position especially suitable for Masters and PhD students. It would also suit postgraduate students who are keen to expand their writing skills and knowledge of particular or different subject areas.

 

We receive orders and enquiries for all types of writing and research in a wide variety of subject areas. Understandably however we do receive more work from some particular disciplines. We currently have a shortage of writers in Business, Economics, Education, Law, Management, Nursing, Psychology and Statistics (SPSS / e-views) in particular. We do however need people in all subject areas to start work as soon as possible. Therefore, regardless of your discipline, if you have the necessary qualifications then we would encourage you to apply today.

 

In return for your valued skills, you will be able to earn an average rate of £48 per 1000 words, with higher rates for more specialist work and tighter deadlines. You will have expert assistance from the team at Platinum Research who will be on hand to help with any questions and/or queries you may have to make things go as smoothly as possible.

 

We are currently entering a very busy period and therefore have a lot of work waiting to be taken by qualified and enthusiastic freelance writers. Though most of our work does come from some specific disciplines, it is advisable to apply no matter what your qualification as we are always on the lookout for good academic writers from all areas of study.

 

To apply to work for Platinum Research, you must reside in the United Kingdom, have evidence of your academic status (degree qualifications) and evidence of your academic writing (samples etc.). We will also ask to see two forms of identification and also proof of your address.

£30k - £40k Per Year

Senior Science Writer

 

Working from home

Salary: £30-40,000 + bonus

 Generous pension scheme, bonus and other benefits

 

 

Are you a bright, creative writer who is passionate about telling scientific stories? If so, this company could be the right place for you. This is a fast-paced, rapidly growing, international agency where you can put your scientific knowledge, creativity, writing skills and energy to good use.

The company is well-run, ambitious and well-funded.

 

 

The Company:

 

This is a well-established but rapidly growing marketing agency that works in the science and life science fields. Often said but rarely is it true- this company cares for its people, and its core values are exceptional.

Due to continuing increases in market share and their ambitious plans for 2020 and beyond, the time is now to jump on board with this rising star.

This is not ‘just another agency’.

 

They combine the worlds of science and marketing communications to open eyes, change perceptions and support the growth and development of the life science community. Ultimately, the work they do ensures that companies, scientists and healthcare experts find and understand the technologies they need to drive discovery and improve the world around us. It’s why they are here. It’s what they are passionate about. And it’s why this agency are one of the leaders in this field.

We’re looking for talented individuals to join our awesome team. Is this you?

 

The Job:

                                                               

By joining our team, you’ll get a full perspective on working within an integrated marketing agency and the chance to work with clients across the globe. Your role would involve writing a mixture of technical content including whitepapers, eBooks and blog posts, as well as creative content (e.g. social media posts, web copy, email copy, infographics etc.).

 

This role would suit someone who loves immersing themselves in a topic and writing for most of their day (although there is typically time each week allocated to working and brainstorming with the client account teams as part of briefing sessions). It would also appeal to someone who loves learning new things, craves variety (we write about many different scientific topics) and enjoys pushing themselves to develop outside of their comfort zone.

As you develop your career, there are opportunities to develop your role in the future, potentially as a content editor where you could lead and manage a team of writers, though the desire to do this is not a requirement.

 

 

About You

This full-time role is perfect for someone looking to further develop within commercial scientific communications, has a passion for writing and wants to put their editorial development skills and sector and scientific knowledge to use as a subject matter expert within our client-based account teams. You don’t need to have any previous marketing experience, but a history and passion within the field of commercial science writing, editorial development or publishing, is a must.

 

You will have:

  • 3+ years working in science writing, content development, or publishing
  • Experience and knowledge of the Pharma and Biotech, CRO and CMO sectors essential
  • The ability to write clearly and concisely
  • The skill to translate complex scientific ideas into compelling stories with clear narratives
  • A flair for creative writing (e.g. creating compelling, engaging social media posts)
  • Exceptional written and spoken English, including exceptional grammar
  • An eye for detail

 

Ideally, you also have a PhD in a life science subject (ideally related to molecular/cell biology or biochemistry).

 

 

The rewards:

 

  • You will work in a brand-new office designed to give you the environment, the space, and the facilities to allow you to shine.
  • Career opportunity based on merit, not time served that will exceed your expectations. Promotion opportunities as well as longer-term company equity possibilities are available.
  • A level of dynamism within the company rarely found outside of a capital city, but set in a beautiful, leafy, well-served location.
  • Mentoring by senior, prolific and successful entrepreneurs.
  • Full company benefits, bonus and pension available

Interviews are immediately available.

 

 

To register your interest in this role or to find our more, please contact Paul Lawton on 01462 654290 or paul@caperecruitment.co.uk.

Description

Freelance Graduate Academic Writers 

 

Immediate Start

 

Are you a graduate or postgraduate degree holder, i.e., BSc, BA, MSc, MA, MBA or PhD? Are you looking for a flexible part time/full time job that fits your lifestyle? Do you excel at academic writing? Can you meet deadlines?

 

Platinum Research are heading towards a very busy period in our working calendar and are therefore in a position to take on a variety of part-time and full-time writers, proof-readers and quality assessors. We are looking for high quality graduates in every major subject area to help us fulfil orders for our customers. To be considered you, must have a minimum of a high 2:1 undergraduate degree and have qualified from a respectable university within the UK. Further qualifications such as a Masters or PhD are also highly desirable and would thus make you suitable for more available pieces. Experience in the writing industry is not essential but preferred. To qualify as a quality assessor we would normally expect you to have a PhD and have experience marking and critiquing the work of students. 

 

Freelance writers at Platinum Research are expected to produce high-quality work for our customers, usually within a timeframe of five days. All orders need to be of the highest quality and submitted within set deadlines. All work will be based upon the requirements of our clients and you will sometimes be required to complete amendments at short notice depending on feedback by the client. At Platinum Research we strive for customer satisfaction and offer to go the extra mile for our clients. After all happy clients are returning clients, which means more work for you.

 

As a professional freelance researcher, you will need to have access to sources from which you will be able to reference, making this position especially suitable for Masters and PhD students. It would also suit postgraduate students who are keen to expand their writing skills and knowledge of particular or different subject areas.

 

We receive orders and enquiries for all types of writing and research in a wide variety of subject areas. Understandably however we do receive more work from some particular disciplines. We currently have a shortage of writers in Business, Economics, Education, Law, Management, Nursing, Psychology and Statistics (SPSS / e-views) in particular. We do however need people in all subject areas to start work as soon as possible. Therefore, regardless of your discipline, if you have the necessary qualifications then we would encourage you to apply today.

 

In return for your valued skills, you will be able to earn an average rate of £48 per 1000 words, with higher rates for more specialist work and tighter deadlines. You will have expert assistance from the team at Platinum Research who will be on hand to help with any questions and/or queries you may have to make things go as smoothly as possible.

 

We are currently entering a very busy period and therefore have a lot of work waiting to be taken by qualified and enthusiastic freelance writers. Though most of our work does come from some specific disciplines, it is advisable to apply no matter what your qualification as we are always on the lookout for good academic writers from all areas of study.

 

To apply to work for Platinum Research, you must reside in the United Kingdom, have evidence of your academic status (degree qualifications) and evidence of your academic writing (samples etc.). We will also ask to see two forms of identification and also proof of your address.
